Product Description

Tasting notes
Citrus, green pineapple and herbaceous aromas combine with lemon zest and honeydew melon flavours on the palate. Well balanced acidity delivers a crisp, clean finish.
Viticultural notes
The fruit for this Chardonnay was grown in the Ballandean district of the Granite Belt.The Granite Belt is situated on the Great Dividing Range 850m above sea level and 95km inland from the coast. The Winters are cold and frosty and Summers warm producing a continental climate.  Most of the region’s rainfall comes in the growing season feeding the buds and shoots.  The soil is largely composed of granite, somewhat on the acidic side and is very free draining.
Winemaking notes
This Unwooded Chardonnay has been fermented using two complimentary strains of yeast (co-inoculation) based on Studies conducted by the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI). We have found that co-inoculation intensifies the flavour and aroma profiles of the wine producing wonderful results.  This Unwooded Chardonnay has been fermented in stainless steel giving it a crisp, clean finish.
